New Aston Martin DBX707 – “The world’s most powerful luxury SUV”

Aston Martin has unveiled the new DBX707 with 520kW and 900Nm, which the company said is the most powerful luxury SUV in the world.

“Fastest. Most powerful. Best handling. Three accolades for which the DBX707 was conceived to claim,” said Aston Martin.

“Every area of the car has been enhanced to boost performance, intensify driving pleasure, and amplify its on-road presence.”

Performance

Starting with the powertrain of the normal DBX – a 4.0-litre, V8, twin-turbocharged motor – Aston Martin boosted power and torque by adding new ball-bearing turbochargers and revising the engine calibration.

Also new is a nine-speed “wet clutch” automatic transmission that is capable of managing much-increased outputs compared to a conventional torque-converter automatic, resulting in a 115kW and 200Nm boost over the standard engine.

Additionally, the powerful Aston Martin features electric torque distribution that can send up to 100% to the rear, along with triple-volume chamber air suspension.

This setup allows the DBX707 to sprint to 100km/h in 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 311km/h – 1.2 seconds quicker and 20km/h faster than the DBX V8.

Standard fitment on the world’s most powerful SUV also includes carbon-ceramic brakes (CCB) measuring 420mm and 390mm at the front and back, respectively, as well as 22-inch alloy wheels.

“These CCB discs are gripped by 6-piston calipers and result in a 40.5kg reduction in unsprung weight,” said Aston Martin.

Further fine-tuning in the DBX707 was done on the Dynamic Drive settings, with the “Race Start” function now available in GT Sport and Sport+ modes “to maximise off-the-line acceleration.”

Design

“In keeping with its extensive engineering upgrades the exterior and interior of the DBX707 have received an equally thorough design makeover,” said the manufacturer.

A new front-end with a larger grille, a new front splitter, new daytime running lights, and new brake cooling ducts are fitted.

Dark satin chrome window surrounds and bonnet blades continue the sporty look, while a new lip spoiler, enlarged rear diffuser, new rear bumper, and quad-exhaust finish the exterior revisions.

The interior of the new Aston Martin then sees a reworked lower console that contains the drive mode selection switches, which negates the need for the driver to navigate to these settings on the infotainment screen.

The dock now contains dedicated buttons for suspension mode, the electronic stability programme, manual gear selection mode, and the active exhaust switch.

Furthermore, 16-way electrically-adjustable Sport seats with front and rear seat heating are included, while three upholstery options are on offer: Accelerate, Inspire Comfort, and Inspire Sport.

Standard-fit is the Accelerate package, which features a mix of leather and Alcantara.

The Inspire Comfort and Inspire Sport options bring Semi-Aniline leather seats with embroidered Aston Martin wings on the headrest, a contrast stripe down the centre of the seat, and a perforation pattern in the seat back and base cushion.

As with the outside, the cabin also features dark chrome finishes with a Piano Black veneer as standard. Bright chrome, carbon fibre, and bronze metal mesh veneers are available at an additional cost.

Launch

Production of the Aston Martin DBX707 will commence in Q1 2022, with the first deliveries scheduled for Q2 2022.

The Aston Martin DBX707 has not yet been confirmed for a South African introduction.
